Like hardly any other poem, hope and hopelessness are so opposed to each other. Technology appears to be a solution and generates the feeling that we can save ourselves. And while we pass silently with hope, things of all kinds can cast a spell over us and flood us with poetry

Die Wolke

Eine weiße Wolke seh ich schweben
In dem bergumkränzten Himmelsrund,
Ihre schön gezog’nen Linien heben
Hell sich ab vom tieferblauten Grund.

Schiff der Seligen! Nicht Erdenschwere
Trägt sein Bord, ein leichtes Ätherspiel
Steuert es im sonnenhohen Meere
Froh entgegen einem guten Ziel.

Blaue Fluten schmeicheln seine Lende,
Führen es zum nahen Felsenrand,
Und von seinem glänzenden Gelände
Fällt ein Leuchten in das ferne Land.

Wohl das letzte; denn ein Felsenkegel
Schattet schon die Quelle seines Lichts,
Und mit vollem, ausgespanntem Segel
Schwindet es hinüber in das Nichts.

― Alfons Petzold


Anton Markus Pasing (born March 6, 1962 in Greven) is a German architect.
He received his diploma in 1989 at the Muenster School of Architecture. After a second study at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf for “Integration of fine arts and architecture” in 1991 he was appointed a master student of Oswald Mathias Ungers. He studied Art History, Sociology and Philosophy in the minor subjects at the Art Academy and was next to Ungers also Laurids Ortner and Ernst Kasper as a teacher.
Anton Markus is the founder of the “remote-controlled” office, which has been established in Münster since 1994. After lecturing at the University of Innsbruck (Austria) at the Department of Interior Design and at the “Muenster School of Architecture”, he was artistic-scientific assistant at the Department of Building Design and Design of Klaus Kada at the RWTH Aachen from 1994 to 2001.
After receiving a scholarship from the Plus-Min Stichting (Foundation for Fine Arts and Architecture) in the Netherlands in 1996, he received the Villa Massimo Grant of the Federal Government in Rome in 1999. Also in 1999 he was awarded the prize of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia in the field of architecture, urban planning and design.
After working for a year as the head of the design and architecture department of an internet company for the creation of an interactive online world in Hamburg, he was appointed guest professor at the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University Darmstadt as visiting professor for “Experimental design with new media”. In the same year he accepted a guest professorship for “Simulation” at the Muthesius College for Art and Design in Kiel.
In 2002 he started working as a freelance illustrator for the weekly newspaper “Die Zeit” in Hamburg and published with Karin Damrau the book “Unschärferelationen” in Nelte Verlag.

Since 2003 he is a full professor at the PBSA (Peter Behrens School of Arts) in Dusseldorf for “Design and typology of the designs and their representations”. From 2006 to 2016 he was Visiting Professor at the Texas A&M University in the USA (College Station) for “Visual Studies” at the department “Visualization”.
The work of his office “remote-controlled” is located at the interface between architecture and fine art. His projects are mostly narrative charged and deal with personal issues as well as social issues. On the one hand, the projects are speculative on the other hand, they serve political as well as sociological issues. The pictorial language can best be described by the terms “crossmedia” or “hybrid representation technique”. Traditional techniques of collage combine with drawing and computer-aided.
His projects were u. a. at the NAI (Dutch Architecture Institute) in Rotterdam, in the Aedes Berlin Gallery, at the Architecture Biennale in Venice, on the 1st. International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam and shown in the New Collection in Munich and at the Dortmunder Kunstverein. Other exhibitions in Korea followed until today.
From 2004-2007 he was the scientific director of the MKI (Institute for Media, Communications and Information) in Düsseldorf.
In 2010 he was nominated for the “Smart Future Award” and in 2016 won the KROB First Prize for “Best Digital / Hybrid Media”, USA.
Most of the office’s projects until 2002 were published in the publications “remote-controlled architecture” and “16: 9_remote-controlled II”.
In 2014, Anton Markus Pasing published the book: “Eutopia II: non-linear multiple hybrid solutions”, which was published by Revolver Verlag Berlin.
More recent projects can be found in numerous magazines and magazines as well as Internet publications, especially on his homepage.
